Abstract

Recently, the need for reusable space transportation systems has increased in an attempt to reduce launch costs. The Space Systems Laboratory of Kyutech (Kyushu Institute of Technology) has been developing a reusable space transportation systems called WIRES (WInged REusable Sounding rocket) since 2005 [1, 2]. This paper addresses the development of a hardware-in-the-loop simulator for experimental winged rockets. In order to evaluate the navigation, guidance and control performance of the winged rocket, a hardware-in-the-loop simulator was developed. The benefit of the hardware-in-the-loop simulator is to enable the performance evaluation in the most realistic environment using the actual hardware. Authors will develop the experimental winged rocket of WIRES using this hardware-in-the-loop simulator and conduct a flight test of the winged rocket in 2018.
